Students will have a blast creating ecosystem trading cards. It is a perfect way for students to creatively show what they know about ecosystems , share their work with others and interact with their classmates come trading time! There are 8 ecosystems trading cards (4 cards per page), blank trading card backs, and a trading card pocket to store the cards. Each card contains an ecosystem key term, a blank spot for a picture and a lined space for writing facts about the ecosystem key term. You can use the pages as an assignment or for a project, or you can cut them up and use the cards individually for warm-ups or exit tickets. After your students have completed the ecosystems trading cards, let the games begin! Randomly pass out the trading cards to your students as rewards or hide them in your classroom. Tell them if they collect 5 or all 8 cards, they win a prize.

Your students will be completely engaged with this hands-on activity!
